Question about Computers & Internet

3 Answers

I am trying to create an autorun cd from the flies produced by Access 2007 Runtime ?Package Solution Wizard?. This produces the following 1. A folder called ?files? 2. A file ?setup.exe? 3. A file called ?autorun.inf? The autorun.inf file contains to following; [autorun] OPEN=SETUP.EXE /AUTORUN ICON=SETUP.EXE,1 I have burned these three items several time to a cd with the sane result, it will not autorun. (Commercially produced progs with a similar autotrun.inf file work perfectly on the same computers ? so it?s not the setting on the pcs). When I insert a cd with these files on, the directory appears on the screen, if you double click setup.exe directly, all is well and the program installs perfectly. As I understand it if Windows XP finds the autorun file in the ?root directory? it will execute, and in this case start setup.exe. I have examined the file on these commercial discs and can?t see any difference to mine. Have I in fact got these file in the ?root?? Is it the type disc, burner or is special software required? Can anyone give me some step by step guidance on how to resolve this? Many thanks in advance ? please help a very frustrated newbie!

    I agree - however it does not solve my problem.
    The comment about "shell" seems irrelevant as commercial progs with the same autorun files start up perfectly on the same pc - so its not the pc. In any event I have to send this cd out for use on any pc.

  • james_groat Jul 17, 2009

    Sorry, exactly the same result. Just puts the directory up on the screen. I copied & pasted your code which is the same as mine except in lc and without the icon bit.

    ie

    [autorun]
    open=setup.exe



    As I say commercial cds with the same code start up on the same pcs ok. Is it my burning software, the method of burning or what? The disc I use are CD-Rs of good quality. This problem is driving me mad. Hope you have some further solutions!

I had the same problem when I first tried to burn my own autorun cd's. Two things I found really helped out. First off do a search for Shellrun.exe, which is a free file to download. Make sure this is included with the files that you are burning onto your cd. The following is an URL which spells out exactly what needs to be in your autorun.inf file. Here is the URL =>

It can be a syntax error, try using the text I write below, save it as autorun.inf with notepad and burn again the disk.

------


[autorun]
open=setup.exe

-----------------------

if you want to add an icon, create a setup.ico file, and then add the following line.

icon=setup.ico


the file will be


[autorun]
open=setup.exe
icon=setup.ico

Please do copy the text above in a new notepad file, and save it, instead of editing the original file.

Thanks.

This is what a autorun.ini file on the root of one my usb sticks reads:

[autorun]
label=TrueCrypt Traveler Disk
icon=TrueCrypt\TrueCrypt.exe
action=Start TrueCrypt
open=TrueCrypt\TrueCrypt.exe

in this case the files are stored in a folder inside the usb drive so only the autorun.ini file is on the root in this case, but it does not matter as long as the path is written right.

so if all files are stored on the root it would read the following:

[autorun]
label=TrueCrypt Traveler Disk
icon=TrueCrypt.exe
action=Start TrueCrypt
open=TrueCrypt.exe


Also make sure the Shell Hardware Detection is started.
press start -> then run -> type in: Services.msc and click ok
find Shell Hardware Detection and make sure it says started on the status and Startup type is automatic.

    Sorry, it is a autorun.inf file not ini. Got confused with file endings.

I recently purchase a emac for my daughter, it's


Hi, unfortunately not every accessory that you can use for windows based pc's is good for Mac platform. This is why when you click on Autorun.exe the Mac won't install anything and won't work.
You should check if the device you want to use is Mac compatible. If you don't have the original package you should go to producers website and search for your device compatibility list.
If your device is not designed for Mac paltform you have to buy another device Mac compatible.
Let us know if you solved your problem

How can i install vista in my lenovo g550.i have installed xp priviously, but,now want to install vista in it.i have the copy of vista home premium os cd. please help me.


1. Backup all your files. Windows XP has a "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" under System Tools under Accessories under All Program. Use it to create one (large) file -- copy that file to a DVD-recordable disk or to a USB memory-stick or to an external disk-drive.
2. Verify that you can read that file -- writing a "bad" copy would be horrific.
3. Access the LENOVO web-site -- looking for device-drivers for your model of Lenovo,
that will not be contained on the Vista CD. Download them, and save them to a CD-recordable disk (not a USB disk -- you may need these device-drivers, in order to enable the USB ports after installing Vista).
4. Insert the Vista CD. It should "autorun" something, asking your permission to start the installation of Vista.
5. Follow the on-screen prompts.
6. After the install completes, use "Windows Update" several times, to get all the security-fixes that have been issued since the release of your Vista CD.

CD html presentation-hyperlinks don't work with other pc's


To create an Autorun-enabled CD-ROM, proceed as follows:
  • Create an Autorun.inf File
    Autorun.inf is a text file that is located in the root folder of your application CD-ROM. It provides to the computer the name and the location of the startup program for your application that is installed when the CD-ROM is inserted. The Autorun.inf file can also contain optional information including the following:
  • The name of a file that contains an icon that represents your application's CD-ROM drive. This icon appears in Windows Explorer instead of the standard drive icon.
  • Additional commands for the shortcut menu that appears when the user right-clicks the CD-ROM icon. You can also specify the default command that runs when the user double-clicks the icon. Autorun.inf files are similar to .ini files.
  • The [autorun] section contains the default Autorun commands. All Autorun.inf files must have an [autorun] section.
  • icon: Specifies the path and the file name of an application-specific icon for the CD-ROM drive.
  • open: Specifies the path and the file name of the startup application.

Autorun.infThe following is an example of a simple Autorun.inf file. It specifies Filename.exe as the startup application. The second icon represents the CD-ROM drive instead of the standard drive icon.
[autorun]
open=Filename.exe
icon=Filename.ico

Reformat system - for Sony Vaio - part 2


You have to create the recovery cd using the Sony Recovery Media kit creator program.
It should be in the control panel. It requires 1 DVD and 1 CD-R cd. Or 7 CD-R cds.

You can however use the recovery wizard, but it will erase the Recovery Media Kit. It also can be found by using the recovery wizard in the control panel.

My vb proj.works in my pc bu not in the org. for it has been made


Hi,

You should use Package & Deployment wizard (its there in visual studio 6 only under menu)
Create a package, include all dependencies, include database file (i guess you are using msaccess)
Once the package is created, go to Deployment wizard, to include the package created, you'll then get one Setup (as usually softwares are packaged)

If you go like this, you dont have to worry about the dependencies in your project or any runtime lib that might required.
It will work anywhere where you install your software like u usually install others.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

x:/setup.exe
where x is your CD drive designation
and then select OK.
2. When the installation wizard is displayed, follow the
installation instructions on the screen.
3. Restart the notebook if prompted.
